We handle retail and hospitality issues of all shapes and sizes.
The retail and hospitality industry touches on a broad range of legal issues. Between brick-and-mortar premises liability, employment disputes, workers’ compensation, and complex commercial transactions, businesses in the retail and hospitality industry face many situations where having good counsel is key to success. That’s where we come in. We provide comprehensive representation to retailers, manufacturers, restaurants, hotels, and many other businesses in the retail and hospitality industry whose needs are complex and wide-ranging.
For many years, our attorneys have been handling retail and hospitality issues in North Carolina’s federal and state courts, at both the trial and appellate levels. No matter whether our clients are defending against claims or pursuing relief in the courts, we routinely litigate in the areas of trade secret misappropriation, trademark disputes, unfair or deceptive trade practices, premises liability, employment discrimination, non-competition agreements, and breach of commercial contracts. Our firm is a leader in national organizations that focus on litigation issues specifically tailored to the retail and hospitality industry.
We also have extensive experience in the workers’ compensation area. Representing companies with workforces big and small, our attorneys can handle all issues related to workers’ compensation, including claims for on-the-job injuries and deaths; occupational disease claims, including claims arising from exposure to asbestos; compliance with workers’ compensation and insurance laws; insurance coverage; uninsured and self-insured employers; subrogation liens and related litigation; and claims by independent contractors, drivers, and their employees.
We also strive to protect our clients through prevention before an active dispute arises. We offer consulting on formulation of corporate policies; preparation of employee handbooks; drafting restrictive covenants, such as non-competition and non-solicitation provisions; investigating employee misconduct and harassment; and handling claims and investigations by various governmental agencies such as the EEOC and DOL.
No matter the problem in the retail and hospitality industry, we can help solve it.
